    Diane,
    Your sweet Dewey was a genuine man, God broke the mold when he made him. Our Grandkids always wanted to come see and feed Mr. Dewey’s chicken and fish- He was loved by so many people (as you are too)and will be missed that’s for sure. The comfort of know that he is no longer suffering is what we all wanted for him. He fought so hard to beat it.
    His Memory will forever live in my heart.
    Love and Prayers for you and the family.
    Vanessa

    Friend of many.
